they're part of a pattern, as are technologies, and especially our tidge nal technologies just continue to get so much more powerful and to demonstrate all these new capabilities. that means that we tend to need human labor a little bit less, as digital labor gets more and more powerful. that trend i think is only going to continue. >> give us a specific example. i mean we look at the jobs report like this today, give us an example of how technology, robotics or something might impact a job that might have been there before but is not showing up today. >> well, for example, retail has been a huge employer in the united states for a long time. the job growth there has well slowed-- really slowed down and in some cases turned negative there are a bunch of factors at play there. one of them, though s that a lot of us buy things on-line now, we do self-service, we get our recommendations from recommendations engines as opposed to clerks. an even when we go to the store there tend to be fewer people around to man the cash registers because a lot of that becomes more automated as well. in som

like 3m, united technologies, ibm, all those stocks are going to do well. but don't forget, of course, your utilities, and those fast-growing companies. one i like to talk about his fastenal. i talked about that a couple months ago. > thanks for your help. that is matt shapiro, president of mws capital. it's estimated that there are more than 8.5 million industrial and service robots in use in the world. they make cars, process food and protect us in defense applications. and as our cover story shows you, more of them are being designed to work side-by-side with humans in the workplace. more than 120 companies brought their latest creations that lift, sort and do repetitive motions in the workplace. "we're trying to give the robots more of the attributes of a human, where you have different types, and constantly improving vision systems. we are doing a lot more with force sensing sensor technology." a lot of this is dedicated to heavy-industry. the plexi-glass safety wall, for example, used in this display is often common in the workplace to prevent injury. but now, more robots are be
